Building blocks to a bright future
The guiding principle of our Elementary School, which serves students in kindergarten through fifth grade, is to provide and support a developmentally and academically appropriate program that promotes student learning. Our enriched common core academic schedule includes daily instruction in reading and language arts, writing, math, and social sciences taught by the classroom teacher. Elementary School students also participate weekly in art, music, library, computer, religion, physical education, and Spanish. Credentialed teachers provide instruction in these areas. Students enjoy the opportunity to learn from each other in our Learning Buddies program.
When students complete their Elementary School years, they are well prepared for Middle School. Saint Mark’s students are encouraged to become risk-takers, and they are equipped with a strong foundation in all core subjects that ensures success later in their educational life.
